Princess Eugenie Is Making Sure Her Wedding Is Bigger Than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's
Ah, royal weddings. The showstopping wedding dresses, the cute royal kids all dolled up, the pomp, the circumstance. And of course, that glorious carriage ride around town in front of thousands of adoring fans — wait, didn't that already happen this year?
Well, yes. As anyone who hasn't been living under a rock knows, the palace celebrated a royal wedding in May with the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but just in case that wasn't enough, there's a round two coming up, courtesy of Princess Eugenie and fiancé Jack Brooksbank.
Having two public weddings has led to comparisons galore even now, a month out, but both couples did select St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle for their nuptials. The only difference so far is that Eugenie is apparently making some tweaks to her special day — and those changes will ensure her wedding is bigger.
According to The Daily Mail, Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank have invited 250 more guests than Meghan and Harry did, bringing their total up to 850. That's a lot of people to account for, but it's also a little confusing, because their church only seats 800. Guess they'll be busting out extra chairs.
The Daily Mail adds that Eugenie wants her special day to rival Meghan and Harry's in other ways, including the A-list guests. Apparently George and Amal Clooney, and David and Victoria Beckham are all invited, which really does make this feel like part two of one large, year-long royal celebration. Who's bringing the party hats?
The cost of such huge events aren't explicitly known publicly, but Princess Eugenie and her family have already faced significant backlash over how much her wedding will cost taxpayers.
For their sake, let's keep our fingers collectively crossed for a drama-free wedding day.
